New version is great!

Direct webfms upload is amazing! Thank you so much.

Now we just need webfms to be a little more mobile friendly!

Thanks for your work.

Fantastic alternative scanner

We had reason to use this on Saturday because our barcode scanners weren’t available (they were left in someone’s garage). The scanner functionality was brilliant. Very very grateful this app has been created otherwise we would have been hand-writing 200 entries.
Would be good if you could select a single entry and delete it - when lots are being shoved at you, it is possible to scan the wrong one. Also, would be great if you could scan the finish tokens handed over by people without their barcode, and manually enter the person’s name. Or at least flag the token number as ‘Forgotten barcode’. And some instructions would be good.
But, overall, great app. Could definitely replace the handheld scanners completely.

Awesome app - one little issue

Love the app. Very simple and intuitive.
One (ok, two) suggestions.
1. A more obvious feedback (flash?) on each split would help when it gets busy; haptic is not always obvious, and audio is not obvious enough... which bring me to point two;
2. To stop numpties like me making the Run Directors life miserable, in addition to warning to switch to flight mode a reminder before starting that the volume buttons are also split buttons would be great.
Lesson learned.
